Police search Port Orchard for bank robber

The Kitsap Federal Credit Union on the 300 block of South Kitsap Boulevard went into lockdown after a robbery shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday.

“All of our employees are safe and we are cooperating fully with the law-enforcement agencies,” said Ron Rogerson the bank’s senior vice president of marketing.

But the bandit is still at large.

The suspect is a white male between 18 and 25 years old, 6 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds.

He wore blue jeans, dark shoes, a grey, heavy coat with an orangish-red lining on the inside and a black baseball cap white thin stripes and an emblem in the front.

Port Orchard Police officers and Kitsap County Sheriff's deputies are searching for him in the area around Sunset and Pottery Avenue and the urgent care center near Highway 16 entrance.

Local law enforcement is working with the FBI to find the robber.
